Ever notice how when you pack a regular suitcase you typically end up wearing a fraction of what you packed, or least realized you could have taken fewer clothes?

I used to do that myself, but for the last two years I have been fortunate enough to travel to Europe for a week, and I challenged myself to only take a carry-on suitcase.

One year it was a trip to Dublin, Ireland and this year to London, England. Both destinations required layers as their weather changes drastically within a few hours, and you never know if it will rain. I was determined to not check a bag, and deal with fees, lines, potential lost luggage, and definitely lost time at the baggage claim area.

So here is part 1 of how to pack a suitcase for a week:

Get a good and sturdy carry-on suitcase with 360º wheels so it can easily be maneuvered thru the airport.

Next, I planned what to bring with 3 things in mind: Can I wear each piece at least 2 different ways, is it lightweight and can I wash it by hand in my hotel room.

Below is everything I chose to bring and actually wore during my fabulous week in London.

I am now offering virtual consultations for those that are too far away or are not yet ready to work one to one with me.
It’s only for you if you finally want to know what to wear.
